Do You Have the Entrepreneurial Spirit? #INFOGRAPHIC

Do you think you have the entrepreneurial spirit needed to start your own company or business? A lot of people think they may, but this infographic from MBAPrograms.org gives young entrepreneur hopefuls an outline of what most entrepreneurs look like. Did you know that 65 percent of entrepreneurs didn’t start their own company until they were 30 years or older? Let’s take a look at the infographic below to see if you match up with the majority of people out there with the entrepreneurial spirit.

According to the infographic computer engineering, electric engineering, computer science and physics are the top majors most entrepreneurs took. Of course, that doesn’t mean that if you majored in something else you will fail as an entrepreneur. Although they are the least common, majors like nursing, social work and human resources found their way into the education of entrepreneurs as well. Are you thinking to ditch that job you’re in to start your own company? Most entrepreneurs worked in their job for at least 2.5 years before leaving to start up their own company. Take a look at the infographic below to see how you measure up to the entrepreneurial spirit.
